By the wayside

She looked up, looked down, decided it was in her best way

To stay even if she hadn't found a way

She knew that she would one day

He wanted her gone but nothing could change it

Even if she built back the whole population

Her sins full of blood and her mind’s corrupt enough

But he knew she was in there somewhere

He said if you find her send for me and tell me where she is

Because she's not where she claims to be i'm frightened for the kids

Their shallow minds can't take much more as she grows more remiss

I'm sorry that I left you

I'm sorry that it's done

But I can't go back home

He left that town with a vengeance and a beating heart

A new start had come upon him

The waves pushed him back far enough and the guilt ensued

His suitcase came along and remorse came in it

He had to find a way to deal with his untrue decision

The only way to cope with the fear was to hear the roar

The page was blank and clean but the mind knew more

He wrote if you find her send for me and tell me where she is

Because she's not where she claims to be i'm frightened for the kids

Their shallow minds can't take much more as she grows more remiss

I'm sorry that I left you

I'm sorry that it's done

I hope some day that I can come back home

Well he found a way to deal with the pain but the stain showed through the cloth of truth

The fear crawled up his spine he couldn't take it no more

The time didn't wait for the wounds to heal, four years had gone by the wayside

Well he found her and sent for me to tell him what she needs

A good night sleep and medicine makes all you've ever dreamed

A fickle heart will grow much more with care and company

I'm sorry that I left you

I'm sorry that it's done

But you won’t need to make it all alone.
